Don’t Call it a PunchLine, when it feels more like a slap – Yeah yeah, maniacal behind the mask
A dollop of sunshine to forget about the past – Na Na, the metamorphosis doesn’t match
A bottle of moonshine oughtta numb me to the blast – There There, the artificial doesn’t last

Whether it’s right, Or whether it’s wrong – It’s really all the same, I’m just happy to be moving along

The edge of the fault line, looks like we’re slipping into the cracks – Yeah yeah, the hypothetical isn’t a fact
Call it a PunchLine, but fear makes it sad – There there, superstition becomes a trap

It’s within my right, Call it even if it’s wrong – I don’t really give a damn, I’m just happy to be moving along

Single finger peace sign, I won’t give it more than that – Na na, there there, there there, na na, forget the hullabaloo – & get back on track
Deliver this PunchLine, I’ll be glad to finally laugh – Yeah yeah, there’s no more obstacles in our path

Whether it’s right,  Or whether it’s wrong – It’s really all the same, I’m just happy to be moving along
It’s within my right, Even if it’s wrong – I don’t really give a damn, Happy to be moving, glad to be moving, ecstatic to be moving along – Oh I’m Happy – to be Moving Along

Punchline is a song about moving on from relationships, whether intimate, career, social, or other.  It is an anthem for processing & releasing…

The idea for the song started several years ago. After a sizable move across the country for a job opportunity, the adage that the grass isn’t always greener became apparent and it was time for me to move on.  This version of the song was recorded in 2020.

As with many things, the full nature of the song didn’t flesh out until I was in the midst of processing emotions.  At that point, the idea that leaving is the punchline had taken root and started to grow.

“It’s within my rights, call it even if it’s wrong.  I don’t really give a damn, I’m just happy to be moving along” 

Cheers,

JJ
